but praise for the quote, exemplary work of u.n. ambassador susan rice, a possible frontrunner to be the next secretary of state. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham have called rice unthus worthy and unqualified for a promotion for her comments that an anti-muslim video triggered the benghazi attack that skilled four americans. president obama insisted the ambassador was simply making a presentation based on the available intelligence and had tough words for the senators. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity at the state department department, then i will nominate here. >> eliot: much more on that a little later in the program. the president also reached out to the g.o.p. on immigration reform and offered an idea that he would like to see from congress. >> obama: whatever process we have needs to make sure that border security's strong, needs to deal with employers effectively, needs to pro
anniversary of the u.n. vote that created the state of israel, the u.n. officially recognized the state of palestine by a vote of 138 to 9 with 41 countries abstaining and the u.s. voting in opposition. palestine status at the u.n. was upgraded to that of nonmember observer state. while they still be only be able to own proceedings, this allows palestine to apply for membership in other international organizations. something both israel and the united states had hoped to avoid. meanwhile in egypt for the seventh day in a row protestors marched in tahrir square to have the constitutional assembly begin voting on a new constitution. yet's egypt supreme court announced that on sunday, it would decide whether or not to dissolve the constitutional assembly so voting was accelerated to perhaps render moot sunday's decision. many of whom are boycotting what they perceive to be a process hijacked by the muslim brotherhood. joining.me is james jeffrey former u.s. america west arena bass der to iraq. he served as the deputy to the

a second term we might be able to get that done because we have a lot of long-term un unemployed. i hope some of the tax breaks, such as the breaks on social security payroll taxes can be continued onward from december. i think that's very important to keep money in the hands of the middle class and enabling their spending, and jobs. >> eliot: all the miles you're talking b all of which i'm fully in accord with all predicated with president obama to guide the path. i agree, if he gets the second term. one of the premise that i view and i think you view as one of the misguided policies of mitt romney if you lower the tax breaks you get an outbreak of investment. there was a survey that disputed that. they polled it under political pressure. what is your wisdom as someone who has studied this in great death, would this bring investment as mitt romney high hypothesizes. >> no, between cutting marginal tax rates on the top and creating more jobs or economic growth. clinton increased taxes and we had jobs than when bush cut taxes. yet average economic growth during the years was better than
after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> stephanie: i'm telling you he's a fan of american president president. >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> he did mention eating sand. >> stephanie: that's real leadership. that's not sand. >> sound bite: people want leadership mr. president genuine leadership. they'll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. they're so thirsty for it. they'll crawl through the desert like a mirage. >> cenk: youmirage. >> stephanie: you guys know how this ends. >> they drink the sand because they don't know the difference. >> stephanie: way out of your league bob--what is his last name. >> i've never seen the movie bob woodward? >> you're fired. >> stephanie: bob rumsford, and i'm running for president. >> mr. president, you're going to need a bigger boat. >> when it comes to rob reiner movies, i prefer misery. >> stephanie: they're all s
and this is exactly what israel did. we're going to the u.n. what's wrong with that? >> we are not sitting down and negotiating. the obama administration want the two parties to sit down and negotiate. they don't want the palestinians going to the united nations vitallion the agreements that we already have which is going to make people angry on both sides. you're going to have unilateral measures on this side, on that side getting further away from the table. >> david they've been trying to negotiate for decades. what kind of negotiation is it when israel says i don't care, i'm going to continue to built settlements. >> let's look at the record. three years ago, we had a prime minister who made yet another proposal to hamas, which was conveyed by the american administration. it basically said you take back 93 94% of the west bank and gaza, the 6%, we will hold and we will in return give you swaps from inside israel for that 6%, we'll do arrangements for jerusalem and so on and so forth. the proposals have been made. the problem is there hasn't been a response. here we are all these years later
pickle over the past year because a year ago they went to the u.n. and asked for membership and the embassy security council said no. we threatened to veto. it wasn't necessary. that basically badly damaged the p.a.'s relationship with its donor base. with the united states and with the eu. and they're receiving very little aid. they're not able to do their institution building program projects they're not able to meet payroll. they paid public employees both in the west bank and they can't even pay people. at the same time hamas has gone to this leadership transition where the external leaders losing their base in syria and iran have diminished in power. internal leaders have pushed the arms struggle business, confronting israel is part of the case for saying we are the leadership of gaza. not you guys outside. we who rule and we fight and that's what really i think got a lot of this going again. now, all that comes -- of authority that's broke. that's been turned away from the u.n. and sort of has negotiat

"the new york times" explains, the matter may have lost some urgency after november 6th. oh okay great. now that they're become in charge, get back to it without any clear rules. listen to what president obama said in october when he went on the daily show and talked about the zone strikes. >> one of the things we got to do is put a legal architecture in place and we need congressional help to

peace since he has hands-on experience in the middle east. so far the u.n. secretary general, the french foreign minister and israeli representatives are trying to come to a resolution along with egyptian negotiators in cairo. hamas is saying that israel can stop the fighting simply by agreeing to hamas' demands. they're claiming israel is begging for a truce. a claim that israel vehemently denies. in other lighter news this morning, let's turn back to u.s. political news where representative alan west is still buried in denial. he won his bid for a recount of early ballots in st. lucie county but he is still losing when it comes to keeping his congressional seat in florida's district 18. in fact, democratic patrick murphy picked up some 300 more votes over the weekend bringing his total to about 2,000. west is still refusing to concede the election saying that he plans to review the result and additional data in order to decide how to move forward. murphy has claimed victory and it is very clear that west is p

on the global level. how do you get the nations -- >> so we're -- the un has been almost as in effectual as congress in this issue. we're in the spring convening a meeting, calling it global power shift with six or seven young people from every country or north -- well we don't work in north korea, but every place well, coming together with an agenda that will tell the countries that you are not getting it done. you are repeating the same empty phrases over and over again. sometime for work or get out of the way. >> jennifer: what is the message those young people are going to take. you keep saying it is about the math. what are the simplest numbers that we have got to remember to help persuade. >> the most important thing to understand, and it's new information in the last year or two from financial analysts is the fossil fuel industry has in its reserves five times as much carbon as the most conservative governments in the world think question put into the atmosphere. >> and what if they use it? what happens to us? >> the temperature goes up 7, 8, 9 degrees. we br
that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and besmirch her reputation it is outrageous. >> this fight over benghazi is getting nasty peter ogborn. >> yeah, it is. it is. and sadly, it's becoming politicized because there may be a real issue there but who knows. there's so much noise from republicans, especially that we're clouding the issue. >> dan henning with the "full court press" this morning. dan? >> this is the "full court press." >> good morning, gentlemen. other headlines making news on this friday. movie night at the white house last night. the hill reports president obama invited the cast and crew of "lincoln" over to his house for a private screening of the new in i have out this weekend. daniel day-lewis steven spielberg were expected to be there although the white house did not release an official guest list. president of course has a strong admiration for president li
. i'm michael shureer. john mccain has been leading a republican attack on u.n. ambassador susan rice. they claim rice who might be the next secretary of state purposely misled the american public about the attack in benghazi. that led to four americans including am bass door, dead. he realized that his baseless attacks made him seemed like a crazy old coot. he's agreed to meet rice face-to-face tomorrow in d.c. she will talk to other detractors. some current cabinet members like timothy geithner said they will soon be leaving. in tonight's political round table, we will draft our fantasy choices for these slots. here to play, joe williams. we've never played before, comes to us from washington d.c. joining me here is christine the chair of the california democratic party women's caucus. we begin with secretary of state. your fantasy choice is samantha powers christine yourself is chuck hagel and mine is james cunningham. why do you pick power? >> if we're doing a fantasy draft, you want somebody that goes hard to the left. we've had enough who go to the right. basically, samantha pow
growing demographic was the latino population, but they're really poised with having an un unprecedented outcome. there are ten states, swing states that are in place this have large hispanic populations. but even in places that don't have a large hispanic population slight voting shifts will determine who carries those states. right now the bulk of hispanic voters are staunchly supporting president obama. i think they believe him when he says that he's a fighter for working families, and for immigration reform. i think they've seen a lot of very ugly rhetoric on the republican side of the aisle particularly with tee party candidate. and they're very turned off by that message. they're very much supportive of president obama for re-election and democrats in general. >> you know, the prior high watermark in terms of latino support for any candidate was president clinton in who got 72%. and if we know this poll is correct, we won't know for a few days if it is, the president will get 73%. not only is he hitting the high watermark, but the percentage of the electorate that is latino has jum

politically un unsustainable for them. imagine if the president goes on television january 1 january 2 january 3 and saying, are you kidding me, americans won't get tax relief unless there is a bonus tax break on top of $250,000? it's time for john boehner to make sure he gets his caucus on board to do the right thing. >> eliot: the president should entice them to get to that point without caving. the president should be as rigid as a piece of steel and not cave. i don't think it will be quite the cataclysm people are saying. read paul krugman's article in "the times" today. frankly, it's a lot of wall street folks who are saying you got to deal with it because wall street guys have been wrong about virtually every economic forecast they've made. let them scream that the sky is falling. it really will not. i want to switch gears for a moment. the recent move on the part of the republican party to rush for immigration reform. that is an affirmative outcome of the election. do you think it's doable? >> yes, i do. if republicans learned one lesson and hopefully they'll learn this one, it's that t
former u.n. ambassador john bolton are frothing at the mustache to politicize the scandal. oh goodness sakes. >> i think we need to look at eric holder in the late summer and ask what did he do with the information that he had about the potential compromise of the security of the c.i.a. director. >> jennifer: okay. so let's get beyond the tabloid headlines to some of the real issues at stake for the u.s. military and its mission in afghanistan. for that side of the story we're going to washington, d.c. and phillip ewing phillip has been defense editor at politico. welcome inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. what is the latest revelation about general allen who is in charge of troops in afghanistan what does it mean for the war effort there? >> well, it means very little for the day-to-day reality of soldiers fighting in afghanistan. now they're going to carry out the president's planned withdrawal over the next two years and eventually the goal is to hand responsibility for the w
that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and t
might be that general petraeus has said he believed it was a terrorist and the u.n. ambassador said originally it was not that. is that a legitimate area of some investigation by congress? >> in fairness to susan rice. she did not say it was an act of terrorist. she didn't rule it out either. she made clear her understanding of what happened would evolve over time. the significance of general petraeus on the hill is to begin a more fullsome process to answer questions that still don't have complete answers. the second dimension will be the completion of the accountability review board the arb that the state department is working on and will be released next month by secretary of state hillary clinton. i'm confident through these processes we'll understand through the best of our knowledge what exactly happened and put statements in their proper contexts. >> eliot: look the wild conspiracy theories just seem so crazy and off the wall i don't think they merit discussion. one piece going forward is how this would effect the president's decision about whom and when to nominate to be sec
of the "huffington post." thanks for joining us. >> thank you formation me un. >> eliot: polling is more than picking up the phone, calling 12 random people and adding up who said what? >> increasingly, when i started in this business 25 years ago you could do something like that. you could get a scientifically random sample, a few reasonable steps to make it rigorous and not have to do a whole lot of waiting or adjustment afterwards. now there have been a combination of things. lower response rates the whole cell phone problem basically two-thirds of us have two kinds of phones. another third roughly have a cell phone only, and it's a whole lot harder to know what the odds are getting someone over one phone or another. pollsters are having to make a lot of assumptions one way or another about either about the demographics of who they interview or the mechanism that they use to select it. >> eliot: i want to break this down a little bit. the moment you talk about waiting some answers more than others you're putting into play an opportunity for the pollster to exercise discretion that may be correct o
